1  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Eugene's Grimbly Gunk on: March 22, 2017 06:02:43 PM
For those of you that watch The Walking Dead, you already know about this little guy that has become a pocket pal for one of the characters on the show. For those of you that are unfamiliar, he is a pocket pal of a character on the show.  Cheesy Eugene totes around this Grimbly Gunk in the pocket of his coat, and the fans get to see his funny face peeking out and looking kinda cute. This one is headed to North Carolina to be stuffed in the coat pocket of my cousin.

3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Beer Hat for Cat on: March 05, 2017 09:37:00 AM
Chaircat Mao is most pleased with her newest holiday hat and now she is ready for the week long Saint Patrick's party. (We Irish take the holiday seriously and know you can't celebrate properly in just one day. Uh, five of those may be recovery days, but hey...)



Happy Saint Patrick's Day! Be responsible!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Cinderella's Wedding Coach on: February 24, 2017 07:39:29 PM
Alpha Stamps has a tiny 3D Cinderella coach to assemble and decorate, did you know?  Cheesy (There is a bigger version, too, but I like the 3 1/2" x 5" size). It is so small you could put it on a wedding cake. I chose to keep the coach as simple and elegant as possible, decorating it mostly with paper roses and a few adornments.

You can hinge the door to have access to the interior, which I altered a little bit:

A tutorial on how to hack the kit can be found on my blog. Cushions were made from suede paper, batting, and a snippet of trim and I added tulle curtains to the windows. Because I have a fondness for bitty vintage jingle bells (I swear I add them to all things with wheels...), a few were added to a lollipop stick that was glued to the underside of the coach.

Happy crafting!
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Cat Tales Paper Doll Book on: February 17, 2017 05:05:41 PM
I sort of have a thing for paper toys like airplanes, jumping jacks, "cootie catchers" from grade school, and paper dolls. (Especially if those dolls are animals, or monsters, or just plain weird.) Alpha Stamps has two really wonderful collage sheets featuring Louis Wain's anthropomorphic cats that you can dress and accessorize! Did I mention that they are also story book themed? The collage sheet I used has kitties from the stories of Aladdin, the Princess, and Magician, Robin Hood, and Cinderella. As soon as the collage sheet was delivered to my door, I cut out all the pieces and clothed the cats. And then played with them of course.  Roll Eyes

At about this same time, I had also asked Patraw if he would be interested in a personal swap of an ATC, and it only made sense for me to send a toy-related card. So, long story short, I made an ATC sized book with three envelopes inside that hold the paper doll felines, one for each story, and also included two reversible, removable backgrounds. Blah, blah, blah, here are the pictures:

To make the book easy to mail, connected the head of the kitty on the front with a brad so it would swivel inside the cover and added a ribbon to tie it closed.

Thanks for the swap, Patraw! My new ATCs from you are phenomenal!
6  TOYS, DOLLS AND PLAYTHINGS / Toys, Dolls and Playthings: Completed Projects / Love You Like No Otter on: February 13, 2017 07:06:36 AM
Made a sweet little guy to send to Kid 1 for Valentine's Day.

Hope your Valentine's Day is like no otter!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Valentine's Shrine on: February 03, 2017 06:19:58 PM
I unearthed this tiny 3 1/2" tall shrine with doors while cleaning off the craft table. It is amazing what you find when you tidy up your work space now and again! Actually I clean after every project, but make a ginormous mess in between and it was discovered in that period. I also found a collage image of a be-goggled (that's a word, maybe) pooch. Score!

Hope your Valentine's is super fly!
8  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Valentine's Hat for Chaircat Mao on: February 01, 2017 01:57:40 PM
I've been crocheting holiday hats for my kitty, Chair, much to her chagrin. She is obviously not fond of Valentine's Day. Or any other holiday for that matter.

The rest of her beloved chapeaus are HERE.

February means it is time to put your heart into a handmade gift for a sweetie! Well, don't actually put your heart into a gift, or an ear for that matter, but you know what I'm saying. Here are some lovely projects to get you inspired!

Send your cutie pie to school wearing these adorable Tiny Crocheted Heart Barrettes

Maybe your sweetheart needs a scarf made entirely from hearts!

Need a sugar free way to show your love? How about a cute Chocolate Kiss amigurumi? Embroider a personal message on the "paper"!

Here is a darling Winged Heart that can be hung anywhere. Stuff it with aromatic ingredients or spritz it with Love Potion #9 and send it to the one you adore.

Don't forget to decorate the house with a Valentine's Yarn Wreath.

Hey, look! An anatomical heart that you CAN give away!

But don't decorate the cat. They have no love for the holiday.

Happy Valentine's Day!
